Job: QA Automation Engineer

Title QA Automation Engineer
Job Information

At Xanadu, we build systems and products for the online sports betting industry. We currently have an open position for an engineer in web development to join us and work on – the world’s fastest growing betting exchange.

 Matchbook is a betting exchange platform. This uses peer-to-peer betting where customers can choose to either place a bet or take a bet. It’s suitable for all types of bettors from casual punters to professional traders. Matchbook is no ordinary website. It has more in common with the New York Stock Exchange than with a bookmaker. It operates at scale. Its API processes over 300 million API requests per day. It manages billions of dollars worth of transactions. To put some of this in perspective, it processes more transactions each day than does on Black Friday. At Matchbook you’ll work at a scale which you’ll rarely find anywhere else. The challenges here are big – really big. The people you’ll work with are hungry to tackle them. If this sounds like a challenge too good to ignore, then we want to hear from you.
